Ageing slows the greater your impact on history. Washington, Churchill, and Lincoln live well into their 200s, while figures such as Julius Caesar live for close to a thousand years. It is your 5000th birthday, and you look as young as you did on your 21st.

Lewes FC become first professional club to pay women and men equally
Lewes FC have become the first professional or semi-professional football club to pay their women’s team the same as their men’s team, as part of their Equality FC campaign
By Marcus Christenson

“By committing to paying our women’s and men’s teams equally, and providing equal resource for coaching, training and facilities, we hope to spark a change across the UK that will help put an end to the excuses for why such a deep pay disparity has persisted in our sport. Together with our owners, donors and sponsors, Lewes FC can show that equal pay can be implemented to the benefit of both women and men in sport and beyond.”

The East Sussex club set out their aims as follows:

• Raising and setting the playing budgets for the women’s and men’s first teams at an equal level.

• Providing equal resource for coaching, performance and strength & conditioning staff.

• Upgrading equipment and facilities to meet the standards required by higher football divisions.

• Investment in local grassroots outreach to drive equal participation in football from girls and boys.

The club’s new campaign, Equality FC, aims to raise awareness about gender inequality in football and encourage more support for women’s and girls’ football across the UK and around the world.

Sarge should never, ever be trusted with explosions. Fun idea: Imagine Wash screaming “SARGE-” in the highest pitch possible.

Ok but like Wells Jaha would have made everyone sit the fuck down and been like “y'all need to sort out your problems now”. His father would have never gone off and found alie. he would have helped Jasper with his PTSD, helped Monty understand how to support Jasper, Bellamy with his guilt about Gina and Mt. Weather, he would have given Octavia a reality check for the way she treated her brother, he would have reminded Clarke about who she is and where she belongs, he would have become a solid support system for Raven when she struggled with her leg. HE WOULD HAVE BEEN THE SUPPORT SYSTEM THEY ALL NEEDED.
